Junior Receives Marksmanship Badge

Seth Olson '18 was recently awarded the coveted “Junior Distinguished Marksman Badge #1103,” only the third person to accomplish this feat in school history.

The Junior Distinguished Marksman Badge was first awarded in 2001 to recognize the accomplishments of juniors [all non ROTC and active personnel] participating in the rapidly growing discipline of three-position air rifle.

This award is usually reserved for precision competitors, and the STA Rifle Team competes in the Sporter category. To earn this badge by a Sporter marksman is truly the mark of excellence in rifle competition, and, to do it in just three years is nothing short of a miracle.
